Scott and Debra met on RAGBRAI (Registers Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa) and were married on April 1, 2000 and were incredibly kind, generous and well respected. They would have celebrated 18 years of marriage together on April 1, 2018. Their love for life and each other was matched only by their selflessness in helping others.
